. >> that is the same message we heard last night to bring manufacturing jobs back to the u.s. and trade the workers for the positions. the road trip itself matches the it deserves a vote theme. instead of fighting congress himself, he is trying to enlist the country and pressure them to at least vote on the big issues. job creation, and gun control. looking at you, speaker boehner. we can't go off the coverage. thanks for being here. >> my pleasure. >> looking back at this speech, i guess in the run up to state of the unions, we say they talk for an hour and nobody remembers anything they say. >> sometimes for a lot more than an hour. >> bill clinton is not there anymore. >> not mentioning names. >> did you hear anything that will stand the test of time? we might be talking about 10 or 20 years from now? >> anybody who remembers the speech will remember they deserve a vote. both the benefit and the risk to a president in using a line like that. 1941, franklin roosevelt gave an address to congress, state of the union in which it was interesting. he denounced a lot of opponents saying accusers of hit

exercising political muscle. get it? because she wants us to get fit! >>> groundhog day february 2nd. will have an early spring. if you're wondering. but today is groundhog day in washington, at least that's how leon panetta describes the succession of getting his successor confirmed. con fired cleared a test vote today. same vote he failed two weeks ago. the next vote could come next hour. panetta had two farewell parties and waiting out the last hours of the tenure at the walnut farm in california. hagel, meanwhile, already working out of the pentagon for weeks preparing for the transition and first battle will be a budget war. the dod is faced with cuts even in the next seven months alone of $43 billion. cuts to training, grounded planes, docked warships. all things the president referred to today at a shipyard. >> main reason i'm here is to call attention to the important work you're doing on behalf of the nation's defense and to let the american people know that this work along with hundreds of thousands of jobs are currently in jeopardy because of politics in washington. these
cuts, the same strategy they used in the obama care fight. what's old is new again. the speaker adds with an op ed, writing mr. president, we agree that your sequester is bad policy. what spending are you willing to cut to replace it. that is washington at its best, both sides did agree to the sequester. let me introduce you to the sequester. he is "washington post" columnist matt miller, come on down to contestant's row. let's go right to your column today. you write that it's hard to know which is coming to sequester or the argument made to avoid them. i wonder if you can explain and you have come up with your own solution to this. you might be a little drunk on power here the last time you were on the show. they called for a minimum wage strike. lo and behold, the state of the union address. we want to see what the solution is that we should be looking at here. >> this is proof that the cycle is the most powerful outlet in the universe. that's why you have to come here with ideas. as i argue today, it's like a situation of dumb and dumber. it's a very dumb thing that looks like it
background checks. america can do this. for us. please. >> starting with michael sheer for "time" magazine. welcome. >> thank you for having me, toure. >> one of the things that the senate is proposing a curbing sales in states with relaxed laws to buyers in states with tougher laws. this is not something that the president's been pushing already. sounds interesting. how exactly would they go about doing that? >> i'm not sure the details of how that one would go. i think the full suite of proposals pushed in that bill you are talking about is coming out of what the white house proposal was. there's three efforts now moving through the senate. feinstein effort, hard line gun control assault weapons ban that everyone says has a little chance of the senate let alone the house. there's a big democratic bill which you mentioned with a number of these provisions in it and then a third effort, a bipartisan effort, which we haven't yet really seen the outlines of to focus on the background check area which is really where there is emerging bipartisan consensus at this point. and we're going to see
mott is reporting from in providence, rhode island. the weather channel and nick walker start us off. when's the late semest. >> well, it is very seldom we get snowfall forecasts like this. two to three feet here in the southern portions of maine, down through vermont, new hampshire on in to portions of ma m and looks as if boston probably get anywhere mean 18 and 24 inches. this could be a record-breaking storm for them. new york city's probably going to be in the 12 to 18-inch range. here in boston, we are under blizzard warnings now. blizzard conditions expected with the prolonged time of wind and heavy snow. the snow is really picking up in boston right now. the radar showing it's all snow. temperatures there below freezing and the timing is such that the snow will continue to pick up over the next few hours. by nightfall, probably two to four inches of snow. blizzard conditions this evening. probably 25 to 40 hello mile-her hof sustained winds and through the night and even rising to 35 to 60-mile-per-hour range. 12 to 18 inches more falling and then tomorrow morning beginning t
with us? is he fighting the president to the wall the way we want him to? lindsay graham does have to be very concerned about getting primaried. everyone's talking about chuck hagel. i think back in their district the intensity, the people who demonstrate real interest, intensity and knowledge about the situation, are they the conservative base? for the most part for someone like lindsay graham, absolutely yes. i think that's key to what's happening here. >> all right, mr. crowley, let's talk some turkey. mike murphy has a post-op in time saying the white house has come to the shaky conclusion that the president's best tactic is continue the campaign theatrics and force the gop congress to bend to his will. he writes the president must abandon the silly campaign 3.0 stuff and face reality and since magic doors one lock the door to the votes "some beneficiaries pay more and change cpi," which is budgetary code for slyly lowering budget increases over time. what do you think of this strategy? do you think republicans will come to the table and say let's put entitlement reform on the
event that none of us can foresee at this moment by 11:59 tomorrow that we all turn in to pumpkins or whatever happens when the sequester hits, it is coming. >> i'm a fan of amazing dramatic events so i hope one is coming but i'm not sure if it's coming. this is the fifth manufactured budget cut since the gop take over the house. the gop's image right now is at a historic low, 62% of americans saying the gop's out of touch. 56% not open to change. 52%, too extreme. my question kind of is, can they read? but in a way in terms of cuts, they're getting what they want but people aren't really paying attention to the sequester. is this going to have a long-term impact on gop image or not is. >> it is not clear. part of the issue with the sequester fight is that there is a single moment of drama. the fiscal cliff fight had all of that. you had a moment in time when taxes were going to go up. this is much more of a fiscal slope if you will. that term that democrats started pushing the last time around. >> i believe steve kornacki started to push that term on this program. >> that's right.
